R.P. Lumber Expands to South Dakota

R.P. Lumber Co., Inc. announced it will be acquiring Custer Do It Best Hardware & Lumber, an independently owned retailer in Custer, South Dakota. The transaction is scheduled to close April 19th. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Current employees will transition to the R.P. Lumber team and join nearly 1,000 R.P. Lumber team members.

“This lumberyard has been serving professional builders and DIY homeowners across the central and southern Black Hills for nearly 90 years,” says Bonnie Ramer, owner of Custer Do it Best Hardware & Lumber. “I was certainly not the first owner, but I truly believe R.P. Lumber is the right organization to call itself the next owner of this location.”

In addition to a contractor sales department, Custer Do it Best Hardware & Lumber offers delivery, key cutting, screen repair, glass repair and a full line of hardware and building materials. They also offer an efficient drive-through lumberyard experience for customers.

Custer Do it Best Hardware & Lumber will become R.P. Lumber’s 83rd location and its first in South Dakota.

“Custer Do it Best Hardware & Lumber has stood the test of time,” says Robert L. Plummer, president and CEO of R.P. Lumber. “The care and pride exhibited by Bonnie and her team are apparent. We’re humbled they have decided to entrust this great business to another family-owned company. We look forward to serving customers and building relationships in and around Custer County.”
